RE: furnace

I think i will retire the furnace for a while and get a mister budddy or something.Thinks for all your thoughts on the matter.I think i will try the camera snake idea soon but for now i think i will just use the furnace for emergencies only.

RE: furnace

Buzzing on a DC circuit sounds like a bad connection. Are you running on just battery power? Or unplug and see if the buzz continues.Its running on a 4000 watt onan generator that came with the rv.I have replaced the thermostat with the one on ebay that i gave a description of.I have already had it serviced and cleaned.I had the delay switch checked which is no where near the sound.This is what has been going on before i did all this work and still no help.When i turn on the furnace it does what it is supposed to do.All the way up untill the burner kicks off and the fan just keeps blowing cold air.So i go to the thermostat and turn it up just a hair and i start to hear the sound that i described earlier and the burner kicks back on and all is well untill the next cycle.

RE: furnace

Sound NOT coming from the thermostat....correct? Sound is coming from another area....would this be close to where furnace is? It is probably the 'timed delay relay' in furnace that is buzzingIts not coming from the thermostat.Matter of fact its not coming from anywhere near the furnace.Let me try and give you an idea of the layout.Its a 92 thor pinnacle by the way.The thermostat is in the back where the bedroom is and the furnace is in the kitchen area.The sound is coming from inside the upper wall close to the ceiling on the passenger side.The thermostat is on the driver side.The only way i can see to get to it is through the wall and i dont really wont to do that.

I have an odd situation with my furnace.I am sorry to begin with that i dont have much info on make and model but maybe i can get some more possibilities from the info i provide.The thermostat is a atwood hydro flame furnace thermostat 38452.Look it up on ebay you will see a picture of it.Anyway when i set it to a certain temp on the opposite side of the rv behind the wall i can hear a buzzing sound and the when this happens it seems to effects the cycling as well.Any ideas what the buzzing sound is?It all most sounds machanical mixed with something shortening out.Im pretty sure its related to the thermostat but i dont know if it is something that is gonna burn my wheels down or not?Thanks and i appriciate any ideas y all have.

RE: generator

I will say it again. Model and serial number would help. Most common thing is glassed over slip rings. Rotation cleans them enough to let it start producing power. This is very hard on the regulator if it has one. Can destroy it for about 300-400 dollars.Can starting it more often be a solution?Its an onan but i dont have the serial.

RE: generator

Gummed up carburettor? Try some SeaFoam in the gas, I'd dump the gas tank and use new fuel too.I understand how this would cause hard starting but how would it make the voltage do as i explained?

I have a 4000 watt onan generator.I let it set without exercising it for longer than i wonted like 2 or 3 months.Yesturday when i finally got around to it i started the rv motor.After a few minutes i went to start the generator and it really didnt wont to start.After about 3 trys it finally started.My voltage regulator went off telling me low voltage.It was like 80 or so.The voltage slowly rised to normal but this is the first time this has happened and i dont know what to make of it.Could someone give some idea what is happening?I appriciate it.

RE: water supply

RE: water supply

It is where a trailer set and i wont to turn the water on.Would there be some way the water company can come out and install a water spigot?Would this be a big job?No, it's just plumbing. If one doesn't already exist, you may have to install a backflow preventer.Is this something the water company will do?
